    Castle Story: 6/16 Update - Essence of the Forest Event | EXPIRED

    Storybook Event: Essence Of The Forest
    * Finish all Chapters of Essence Of The Forest to restore the Forest Tree and earn the Forest Stag!

    ** A huge thank you to dragongold1 for posting the future goal steps...

    * Time zone converter: compare where you are with California
    * [==Update requires app update to Version 1.5+, Level 15+, and will be available to start beginning 06/16. Once started, you will have 10 days to complete the event. The event will automatically start on 06/20.==]
    * Note: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO START IMMEDIATELY... YOU CAN CHOSE TO START 'LATER'.

    * This event is available on both platforms.
    * For Android players, you must update to 1.5.0.4g as minimum version is 1.5.
    * For iOS players, you must update to 1.5.2


    How a Storybook Event works
    1. It's not that you have one day to complete a chapter - it's that another chapter won't UNLOCK until the next day.
    2. If you finish the chapter early, you have to wait for the remainder of the time to expire before the next chapter starts. You have to complete a chapter to begin the next chapter.
    3. If you take longer than a day to complete a chapter then the next one will start sooner.
    4. If you gem skip a chapter, the next one doesn't start sooner (you will wait even longer!).




    ISSUES, BUGS and FIXES!
    RESOLVED...17 June
    I saw the forest workshop and bought it. Built it. Now It tells me to buy one. Doesn't recognize that I have it. Would buy another but can't find it. Help!
    no, don't buy another one. I've already reported this... + DON'T buy a second sapling either - it has the same glitch. This is being investigated.

    1. Side Goals: confirmed no rewards and no need to do them if you don't want to. These side Goals are just to guide you through the event.
    [Feedback sent to Dev's about no rewards]

    2. The Forest Workshop and Racoons post event: The workshop will turn into a decoration after the event. The Forest Wood and Forest Raccoons are only for this event.

    3. Can we keep the 2nd tree if we have one? Yes, you can keep the second tree.

    4. 25 neighbour requests... I asked for an increase in the response rate.
    [Feedback shared with Dev's] Update 6/22 - Changed this to 20 requests.[PikaSquirrel]

    5. 40 trade tickets
    [Feedback shared with Dev's] Update 6/23 - Changed CH9 Task 2 to accept any trade in Royal Exchange. Previously only accepted 'Royal Supply Crate' trade. So it no longer requires 40 Trade Tickets to complete this task.[PikaSquirrel]

    Chapter 9, Goal 2 now will work with ANY trades in the Royal Exchange. Instead of doing the 'Royal Supply Crate' trade4x, you can now do any trade 4x and you will complete this.
    Again thank you guys so much for all the feedback! I will update this in the first page.

    Information about the Additional/Side goals are in post 2 below

    Need more Longswords: Crafted: magic forge; Found: jousting arena, Thurston's house, Destrier, Rouncey, Dragon Bones (Baron's tent prize), Fireworks Dragon (Baron's tent), Troll Training Ground, Dragons, Armored Fire Dragon, Armored Ice Dragon, Knights Hall


    Chapter 1: Old Thomas - Ivy seems to have stumbled upon an old forest whilst out on her walk. It appears to be dying, but she is hopeful that there is a chance we will be able to restore it. Young Ruler, venture out into the forest and see what you can find.

    Chapter 1:
    Goal 1 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 VISIT (skip 15)
    Goal 2 Go on Forest Adventure 0/1 GO | 5 strawberries, 1 longsword | Castle only, 30 minutes | speed up is 2
    Goal 3 Find 3 more forest seeds 0/3 FIND (you need to keep adventuring)



    Chapter 2: Old Thomas - Ahh, Forest Seeds. I wonder if we would be able to sprout anything from these tiny vessels of life. Come by my house and we shall think of a plan.

    Chapter 2:
    Goal 1 Visit old Thomas' House 0/1 VISIT (skip 4) Reward: 1 Fresh Soil
    Goal 2 Grow the Forest Sapling 0/1 GO | Potion Shop 2 hours | 8 seeds, 10 water
    Goal 3 Upgrade the Forest Sapling into the Forest Tree 0/1 GO| 10 seeds, 15 water



    Chapter 3: Ivy - The Forest Sapling has started to bloom! It's going to take more than a little water to fully restore it, though. Let's build a Forest Workshop so we have plenty of space to work on what we'll need!

    Chapter 3:
    Goal 1 Look for Supplies (check the sawmill) 0/1 SEARCH (skip 8) Reward: 1 Forest Straw
    Goal 2 Build the Forest Workshop 0/1 GO Reward: 1 Forest Petal | 4 stone block, 4 wooden beam, 2 forest seeds
    Goal 3 Find Forest Petals 0/4 GO (collect from iceland poppies) [they don't drop every collection]
    Goal 4 Collect From Forest Tree Level 2 0/1 GO | 20 water, 14 forest seeds, 10 forest petals



    Chapter 4: Ivy - Those seeds don't seem to be just ordinary old seeds -- I think they're full of magic! I wonder what kind of potion we can create from them. Can you collect some more Forest Seeds while I work out a recipe?

    Chapter 4:
    Goal 1 Go on Forest Adventure 0/2 GO (skip 50) Reward: 1 Petal Potion
    Goal 2 Make Petal Potions 0/1 GO | Forest Workshop 1 hour | 10 Forest Petal, 10 sap
    Goal 3 Collect From Forest Tree Level 3 0/1 GO | 20 forest petals, 18 forest seeds, 3 petal potions, 25 water



    All these trees take 5 waters to grow from sapling to tree
    cost | tree name | no of chops | time between waters

    300 Willow tree | 10 chops | 5 minutes
    400 Elm tree | 8 chops | 3 minutes
    400 Oak tree | 8 chops | 30 minutes
    500 White birch tree | 10 chops | 10 minutes
    600 Aspen tree | 6 chops | 5 minutes
    700 Red acer tree | 10 chops | 10 minutes
    700 Crab apple tree | 10 chops | 3 minutes
    900 Yellow acer tree | 10 chops | 5 minutes
    1000 Pine tree | 10 chops | 15 minutes

    (White birch doesn't seem to work... Oak trees are excellent for me.)


    Chapter 5: Old Thomas - I heard a rumor that you ran into Forest Monsters on your adventure, Young Ruler. These spirits can be dangerous, and may also be the cause of the forests troubles. There is a good chance that they may have followed you back to the Kingdom, we had better forge a sword for protection.

    Chapter 5:
    Goal 1 Read about the Forest Sword 0/1 READ (skip 4) Reward: 1 Forest Wood
    Goal 2 Make Forest Sword (use Forest Wood!) 0/1 MAKE | Forest Workshop, 2 hours | 2 Forest Wood, 1 longsword
    Goal 3 Slay Forest Raccoons 0/1 GO (skip 50)
    Goal 4 Find more Forest Spirits 0/4 GO (chop trees to more more Forest Raccoons. Forest Spirits drop from Raccoons.



    Chapter 6: Old Thomas - Ivy was able to grow a few more plants from the Forest Seeds you have been finding. She delivered forest Thistle to me this morning. Maybe you can find some use for it?

    Chapter 6:
    Goal 1 Visit Old Thomas' House 0/1 GO (skip 4) Reward: 1 Forest Thistle
    Goal 2 Find Forest Extract from Forest Thistle 0/3 GO Reward: 1 Forest Essence
    Goal 3 Craft forest essence 0/1 MAKE | Forest essence - 15 forest wood, 10 forest spirits, 7 forest extract
    Note: Forest Thistle has a 3 hour timer. 3 gems to speed up. (You need to place the Forest Thistle you get from visiting Old Thomas in goal 1. If it doesn't appear in your inventory, then force close your game. The thistle drops Forest Extract..)


    Quote Originally Posted by mikepastry View Post

    So, by completing today's Chapter 6, you will be covered for Chapters 7 and 8, in terms of Forest Essence!


    Chapter 7: Perfect! You're here. check out this Forest Dahlia I grew from those seeds - it produces a very potent Forest Nectar. I'm sure any essence from the forest will help this tree grow, let's try it out!

    Chapter 7:
    Goal 1 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 GO (skip 15) Reward: 1 Forest Dahlia
    Goal 2 Find Forest Nectar from Forest Dahlia 0/6 GO
    Goal 3 Collect From Forest Tree Level 4 0/1 GO | 30 water, 3 petal potions, 1 forest essence, 20 forest nectar
    Notes:
    * Forest Dahlia has 1 hour timer
    * Thistles and Dahlias may have multi drops.



    Chapter 8: Oh shucks! I had another flower I grew -- the Paradise Blooms. I know I put them around here somewhere. Could you help me look for them?

    Chapter 8:
    Goal 1 Look Around the Kingdom 0/1 SEARCH (skip 20) [collect from a Market Place]
    Goal 2 Visit Community Kingdoms 0/30 VISIT (skip 40) Reward: 1 Bloom Petal
    Goal 3 Collect From Forest Tree Level 5 0/1 GO | 40 water, 3 petal potion, 1 forest essence, 30 forest nectar



    Chapter 9: Ah, I heard you've been looking for the Paradise Blooms Ivy has grown. Well, I may have an idea as to where they're at, but it's going to cost you!

    Chapter 9:
    Goal 1 Ask Neighbours for Forest Stones 0/20 ASK (skip 15)
    Goal 2 Trade with the Baron 0/4 [Complete ANY trade in the Royal Exchange] (skip 20)
    Goal 3 Search for the Paradise Blooms 0/1 SEARCH (skip 20) [collect from a sparkling mine]
    Notes: Goal 1 - You need to receive the 20 requests you sent out to complete this goal



    Chapter 10: The Paradise Blooms you found are safe and sound in my hut. I think we can use the blooms from the flower to create Forest Magic. If we use that on the Forest Tree it should be back to its old self in no time!

    Chapter 10:
    Goal 1 Visit Ivy's Hut 0/1 VISIT (skip 15) Reward: 1 Paradise Bloom
    Goal 2 Collect Forest Blooms from Paradise Bloom 0/5 GO Reward: 1 Forest Magic
    Goal 3 Craft Forest Magic 0/1 MAKE | Forest Workshop, 2 hours | 10 Forest Extracts, 10 Forest Blooms, 1 Petal Potion
    Goal 4 Collect From Forest Tree Level 6 0/1 GO | 50 water, 1 forest essence, 50 forest nectar, 4 forest magic
    Reward: 1 Forest Stag (you must reinstall your game to see the correct graphics of the stag)
    Notes: Forest Blooms drops are around 5 each time

    Level 6 Forest Tree has been changed to a 1 hour timer. The timer for level 6 will return to a 22 hour timer after the event.

    Part 1 visit Ivys hut
    Part 2 go on forest adventure 30 mins I think 5 strawberries and a sword.
    2 gems to speed it up in the keep.
    Inside says expired in 9 days
    Outside 10 so somewhere in between

    Also I did get an option screen to start now or to start later. That was appreciated.

    Got seeds from the keep that's it
    Part 3 find 3 more seeds, they drop from the forest adventure. I got one on my first drop so I am assuming 3 more adventures.
    Looks like we will need lots of strawberries.

    2nd forest collection 1 seed.
    3rd collection 2 seeds

    I am on the 3am timer 10 hours til my next chapter

    just got another quest
    Essence of the forest part 1 collect 20 seeds.


    Storm 8 if we are going to have to do a bunch of these adventures could you please add it to the barracks.
